Meeting - New England Association of Chemistry Teachers - March 16th - UMASS Dartmouth

The New England Association of Chemistry Teachers (NEACT) will host its March meeting at UMass Dartmouth, Saturday morning March 16, 2013. The meeting begins at 9AM with registration at 8:30.

We are delighted to have speakers from UMass (Dartmouth, MA) and The Chemical Heritage Foundation (Philadelphia, PA) on the agenda.

Professor Alan Hirshfeld, physics professor and author of numerous monographs in the history of science, will speak to us about how astronomers used spectroscopy to determine the chemical composition of the Sun. Not only relevant to the high school chemistry curriculum, but exciting as it is the subject of his next book.

Gigi Naglak and Jen Dionisio, the creators of CHF.s popular First Friday Series are traveling all the way from Philly to enlighten and entertain us with their tasteful kitchen chemistry stories.

The meeting will take place in SENG 115 on campus; the best parking is in Lot 16 or 17.
For purposes of planning refreshments, we are asking that you RSVP to shawn5678@gmail.com by March 8.

(This is not a Northeastern University program)
